At the same time THE HU have also garnered critical acclaim for THE GEREG:
“[The HU] are not just taking elements from Western music,” observed NPR back in January 2019. “Instead, they’re using some of these elements and making their own authentic music. So it’s not rock music performed by Mongolians. It’s Mongolian rock music.”
“The songs on The Gereg range from Western-style rock anthem ‘Shoog Shoog’ to the pastoral tranquility of “Shireg Shireg” to the bold, almost bluesy swagger of ‘Yuve Yuve Yu.’” Billboard
“You know when you find an artist you’re so enraptured and excited by that you want to tell anyone and everyone who’ll listen about them? That’s how I feel right now about The HU” The Independent
“The HU wound up with nine cinematic songs that seamlessly meld their influences, often highlighting the areas where the two overlap… Given the global platform they earned via YouTube, The HU have an entire nation rooting for them with The Gereg.” Revolver
“…this album is great because the tracks provide a historical glimpse of a country some people may not know about. The Hu is on tour and hopefully, people will learn more about the band while listening to live cultural music.”, MXDWN
This past summer, the band traveled to Europe and the UK for a sold-out 15-date tour in addition to performances at several major festivals including Download Festival, Rock im Park,Rock Am Ring, and Tons of Rock. The band were recently heralded as Cultural Envoy of Mongolia by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Mongolia.

Their debut album THE GEREG is out now via Eleven Seven Music and expected to be the first Mongolian band to enter the UK Top 40. Order “THE GEREG” digitally HERE and on CD or Vinyl HERE.
The album’s title, THE GEREG, takes its name from the term used for the first diplomatic “passport” issued by the Mongol Empire during the time of Genghis Khan. The Band believe this album is their passport to the world and will allow them to travel sharing their music. The USA and forth coming UK and European tour dates will give them a chance to have their ‘Gereg’ stamped in many countries.
THE GEREG contains viral sensations “Yuve Yuve Yu” and “Wolf Totem” which have racked up over 40 million views to date! It also has hits including newly released track “The Great Chinggis Khaan” (click HERE to view) about the story of Chinggis Khaan as he is portrayed in Mongolian culture – an inventor and a founding father of the country, rather than the worldly view of him as a warrior and conqueror – and live favourite “Shoog Shoog”. On Friday, Spotify featured “The Legend of Mother Swan” in many prominent playlists including, New Music Friday (UK), All New Rock and the Epic & Melodic Playlists.
